Lily:Thanks for coming with me to meet the rental agent to view an apartment, but I think I'm lost.
I'm supposed to be there in 10 minutes, but I can't find it.
There are four different apartment complexes located next to each other and they look identical.
Omid:Don't you have the address?
Lily:Yes, but all of the complexes in this subdivision look the same, and I don't see a street number on any of them.
Omid:Are you sure we're looking for a block of apartments?
Maybe the apartment is in a mixed-use building, like that one over there.
Lily:I'm pretty sure.
At least I know it's in a high-rise building and the apartment is on the eighth floor.
That mixed-use building is only three stories high.
Omid:Oh, then it's not a duplex or triplex, like those over there.
Lily:No, it's definitely not one of those.
I'd better call the rental agent and get directions.
Omid:Hey, look over there.I see a couple of the residents of that building walking out.
奥米德:嗨,看那边 。我看到一对夫妇正从那楼里出来 。
Let's ask them. Excuse me. Excuse me! Oh, they didn't hear me.
让我们问下他们 。劳驾您 。打扰一下!哦,他们没听到 。
Lily:I'll just make the call.
Omid:Well, you can be sure of one thing if you move into one of these complexes.
Omid:The bill collectors will never be able to find you!
